    Abby Girl's Note:

    Hand crafted lip balms are so superior to it's commercial counterpart. My lip balms were one of the biggest sellers in my toiletry business....because they worked!!! These are absolutely yummy!!! Beeswax can be found in small pellets for easy handling....just weight out what you need. The oils and butters can be interchanged. This does make up alot, but the recipe can be cut down to make up the amount you need,-- or -- gather some friends together to share a batch -- or -- give these away as gifts. Detailed instructions are included. One ounce = 28.375 grams

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    grams

    Units: US | Metric

    • 30 g cocoa butter
    • 24 g beeswax
    • 12 g shea butter
    • 15 g avocado oil
    • 45 g castor oil
    • 21 g hemp seed oil
    • 3 g vitamin E

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Before starting, make sure your work station is as clean as possible. Have clean utensils and pots -- the tubes you are putting your product in have been cleaned. You want to keep your finished product to stay as sterile as possible. Peppermint ESO or any other cosmetic flavor could be added for taste. Conversion to ounces: 1 oz = 28.385 g.
    2. 2
      Combine all the ingredients and heat until just melted, roughly 3 - 4 minutes. Do not let the mixture come to a boil. Vitamin E and ESO are heat sensitive, so let the lip balm mixture cool down until warm to the touch before adding. Work quickly to pour the balm into either pots or tubes.
    3. 3
      Let stand, undisturbed until the mixture solidify. When the balm has solidified, there will be a "well" in the middle of the tube/pot. Take a knife and smooth the edges down for a nicer look.
    4. 4
      This recipe could be cut into half. You don't need exact measurements, like you do with cooking. Use the ingredients as a rough estimate but make sure that your beeswax/oil ratio is roughly the same. If you used this whole recipe, you could get roughly 12 - 15 lip tubes.
    5. 5
      Vitamin E has it's own healing properties, but it is used here as a preservative. With any home products, there is a shelf life of roughly 2 years. I date my finished product -- but I have usually used it up by then!
    6. 6
      Shea Butter has some wonderful healing properties, but this product is not as smooth as some of the other butters, so the final product will have a slight gritty feeling to it. Once applied though, it will melt into the skin, leaving the lips soft and smooth.
    7. 7
      Because these lip balms do not have the heavy beeswax as does the commercial counterparts, they could possibly "melt" if left in cars during the heat of the summer.
    8. 8
      Caution: These lip balms do not have the heavy preservatives that the commercial counterparts have. With any home product that is "applied" to the skin, keep in mind about how clean your skin is and who is going to use it. The mouth is a huge breeding ground for germs. Beware that if you pass your balm around you could possible contaminate your stick. If you are using pots, try to flick some balm out on your fingernail, then apply that way. The cleaner the enviroment it is going to be used in the longer the shelf life it is going to have. Just some "food for thought"!
